Extending Mathematical Understanding (EMU) – Early Years (Prep to Year 2) Intervention Specialist Teacher course - PDD1036
What is Extending Mathematical Understanding (EMU)?
Developed by Associate Professor Ann Gervasoni of Monash University, EMU is a research-based intervention approach that has been shown to improve students’ knowledge and confidence with mathematics. EMU offers intensive learning opportunities for students who are currently struggling, including a small group intervention led by a Specialist Teacher. The EMU Specialist Teacher courses provide professional learning for teachers to develop their expertise and leadership in mathematics. Underpinning the program is an accreditation process that ensures that EMU specialist teachers maintain ongoing learning in this essential curriculum area, have the expertise to deliver professional learning to colleagues, and work within a whole school approach to improving learning and teaching for all.
EMU Intervention Specialist Teacher course – Early Years
This course educates EMU specialist teachers to work with students in the early years of schooling. It involves field-based learning and a six-day spaced learning program. The field-based learning involves teachers planning and implementing an EMU Intervention Program (5 x 45-minute sessions per week) throughout the year. The course includes workshops, data analysis and reviewing video excerpts simulating ‘behind-the-screen sessions’. Professional interaction, critical reflection, associated discussion and professional reading are important aspects of the course.
